This paper addresses issues related to Knowledge Management in the context of heterogeneous data warehouse environments. The traditional notion of data warehouse is evolving into a federated warehouse augmented by a knowledge repository, together with a set of processes and services to support enterprise knowledge creation, refinement, indexing, dissemination and evolution.
